The countdown for the launch of Apple’s iPhone 13 series has started. Due to the lack of semiconductors, expensive raw material and advanced features, its price may be higher than the launching price of the iPhone 12 series. The initial price of iPhone 12 in India was Rs 79,900. The price of iPhone has now reached above Rs. Even after such a price, the craze of iPhone remains in the world.
Have you ever wondered what would be the cost of production of the iPhone which has now reached above lakh rupees? After all, how much profit would the company make on an iPhone handset? Similarly, how much profit do premium Android smartphone makers like Samsung, Google also make on their handsets.
Let us know today about the cost of their production and the benefits to the company …
Even during the Corona epidemic, the demand for iPhone has been fierce. In the first quarter of this year, the global sales of smartphones have crossed $100 billion (about Rs 7.3 lakh crore). Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max has captured the highest revenue during this period. At the same time, the number of iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 11 remained. According to a Techwallas report, the production cost of the iPhone 12 Pro (128GB) in the US is $406 (approximately Rs 30,000), while Apple sells it for $999 (approximately Rs 74,000). That is, on one of its units, the company makes a profit of 59.36% or $ 593 (about Rs 44,000).
Equal expenditure on both hardware and software of the phone
Tech expert Praval Sharma told that the price of the phone is not determined on a single unit, but by how many million orders are being received. The price of the phone is in the 40-60 ratio in hardware and software. It can be assumed that the company has to spend around 1500 to 2000 rupees in hardware for manufacturing one of the cheapest 4G Android smartphone. In this too, display size, camera megapixels play an important role. At the same time, about 2000 rupees have to be spent for the software. The cost of software which does not get updates gets reduced.
Samsung and Google are also not behind in making profit
It is not that only Apple is making up to 72% profit on its iPhone. Rather, premium Android smartphone maker Samsung and Google also make similar profits on their handsets. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant costs $1350 (approximately Rs 100,200) in the US market, while its production cost is $528 (approximately Rs 39,000). That is, the company makes a profit of $ 822 (about Rs 61,200) on a unit.
Similarly, Google sells its Pixel XL (32GB) smartphone in the US market for $769 (about Rs 57,000), while its production cost is $285 (about Rs 21,100). That is, the company makes a profit of 62.84% or $ 484 (about 35,900) on a handset.
